Subject Re: LowerCaseFilter, is there a reason why the class is final?
Date Fri, 11 Sep 2009 14:18:26 GMT
Lucene has always had way too much use of final for my taste.  I have often
had to resort of chicanery to get around this.

In many cases, there wasn't even an alternative abstract class.  Writing
test cases involving IndexWriters was a case that sticks in my memory.
